The questionnaires were distributed online to investigate the correlation between matching degree and collaboration efficiency. A total of 402 questionnaires were collected and screened. Finally, 346 questionnaires were testified as valid. The SPSS software was then utilized to test the reliability and validity of the data and also make multiple regression analysis. The conclusions were drawn as followed: ① The matching degree of members affects the team collaboration efficiency of interdisciplinary teams. ② The matching degree of behavior and disciplinary knowledge have a positive and significant impact on the efficiency of interdisciplinary team collaboration. ③ Goal matching has a significant impact on the execution efficiency of interdisciplinary teams, but has no outstanding impact on the communication efficiency. ④ Compared with matching of communication behavior, the matching of execution behavior has a more significant impact on the collaboration efficiency of interdisciplinary teams. ⑤ The frequency of team members participating in team collaboration has a significant impact on the matching degree of disciplinary knowledge and communication efficiency.
