At present, university students’ research teams have become an important subject in the innovative behavior of universities. Researching independently in form of team not only help university students understand the research process, accumulate relevant knowledge and experience, but also become an important way for universities to produce high-quality research achievements. The output of high-quality research achievements cannot be separated from efficient team, so how to improve the effectiveness of university students’ research teams and to enhance the overall research quality of university students has gradually become a major difficulty in the management of universities. This research starts from the perspective of three-dimensional capital and puts forward the theoretical hypothesis about influencing factors of the effectiveness of university students’ research teams. A questionnaire survey is conducted with research team members of 20 universities and 307 valid questionnaires were collected. Through data analysis, we verify the positive influence of university students' research team's human capital, social capital and psychological capital on team effectiveness and explore the moderating role of psychological capital. Finally, according to the research results and the information obtained from the questionnaire survey and interviews, we summarize the development status of undergraduates' research teams in universities and put forward management suggestions, which makes this research have both theoretical and practical values.
