What is stem mastering?
The difference between stem mastering and stereo mastering is that in stem mastering you send pre-mixed parts (drums, vocals, synths, etc.) separately to the mastering engineer. It may also be desirable to distinguish all the vocal reverbs to separate tracks. The end result usually consist of 4-8 stereo tracks. The mastering engineer will then ensure that everything sounds good and will make the final adjustments to the song.
